On Tuesday it will be full speed ahead with the Christmas decorating. I find it difficult to wait. The beautiful Christmas posts on several blog, don't make it any easier. My daughters didn't allow me to start before Sinterklaas, and were quite right! Sinterklaas is such an old and beautiful Dutch tradition, it has to get the attention it deserves.
Last week I sprayed some branches white and decorated them with butterflies and hearts. They look lovely in the big white vase. I left work early to bake cookies with my middle daughter. The delicious odour of baking cookies in the house, made them difficult to resist!
Before I forget, I would like to thank Linda from Beautiful Ideas and Belinda from Vintage Rose for the beautiful give-aways they sent me! I posted the mirror I received from Belinda below and will post Linda's presents next week. They arrived just in time for Sinterklaas. Please have a look at their blogs. They are very different in style, but both lovely!
A happy Sinterklaas weekend to you all!
Lieve groet, Madelief x
